PC gone mad.

No.....not my computer....political correctness. Last Wednesday night my eldest phoned me and asked if I could help him out by making a couple of Mother's day cards...wanted by Friday lunch time. Ok I said...who were they for? Turns out that a neighbour had come and told them that her very young grandson was bit upset. The school teacher had told them previously that they would be making a card for Mother's day...but the children had now been told that they wouldn't be doing them after all. Officially no reason was given...unofficially it was because the powers that be, thought that it might offend some of the "non Christian" parents of children who attended the school. Well...I ask you....isn't that just beyond all reason? I did make 4 cards but I wasn't all that happy about them. In the end the little boy didn't need one as the school had relented after many complaints from parents...but his gran bought 2 of the cards anyway as she liked them so much. I made them more of a general card so they could be used for other occasions. Here they are. The first 3 are made using digi images from the Sketching Stamper. (I am liking these digi images the more I play around with them.) The last one I decided to have a play (as you do) with a couple of stamps that had never seen ink and bits of scrap rainbow card. Quite pleased with the way that one turned out. All the backing papers were free with a magazine. Not sure what make the butterfly and flower stamps are..they are the little "Snag 'ems"
